Information Collected for Tracking (Cookies)

This privacy policy explains how our sites uses the personal data we collect from you when you use our website.

First, we will start with the most common privacy issue: use of cookies and how you can manage them. Our user should know that almost all sites use cookies and if they place links to other sites, these other sites are likely using cookies. While website publishers should be transparent about the use of cookies, it should be noted that visitors to websites should be proactive in learning and control which cookies they allow to collect data about them, and which should not be allowed. The end-user (websites visitors) can protect their privacy best and we want to empower them to do so. A simple step we recommend is for visitors to our sites, and other sites for that matter, to use privacy-centered browsers to access our content. Some of these browsers, like Brave, come with default settings that block all cookies from collecting your data. You can adjust the settings to allow sites YOU trust to collect some data or all data depending on your level of trust. With that said, we do our part to be transparent about our use of cookies and what we do with the information we collect. Let’s start with cookies…

Cookies, definitions

Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information.

Our websites use cookies; and our websites may contain links to third-party content (e.g., advertisers that we depend on to keep these resources online; tools that we use to run the site, etc.).

Privacy policies of other websites

Our websites may contain links to other websites. Our privacy policy applies only to our websites, so if you click on a link to another website, you should read their privacy policy.

To provide the best possible experience for our web users, we may collect and store non-personally identifiable information. This information allows us to learn how to improve our web site design. It is never used for commercial marketing purposes. The MAJALLA.org sites uses a third-party persistent cookie to collect information about how the MAJALLA.org site is used. “Cookies” are small files that a web site transfers to your computer to allow the sites to remember specific information. If you do not want cookies to be transferred to your computer, you may choose to opt out of their use by modifying your browser options. While you will still be able to access most features of the MAJALLA.org sites, certain features may not work as well or may be unavailable to you.

Some pages on MAJALLA.org may include web content or functionality from third parties, such as an embedded Twitter timeline, Google analytics, etc. These third parties may use web measurement and customization technologies (such as cookies) in conjunction with the provision of this content or functionality. You should consult the privacy policies of these third parties for further information.

To ensure the viability of the services it provided, MAJALLA.org must pay the bills: bandwidth cost, software, webhosting, and site management and staffing. We hope that, eventually, enough contributions from readers and supporters will be able to cover all costs. But we are not there yet. That is why our readers will see, on some pages but not on all pages and sites, some third-party ads. Revenues from these display ads subsidize the cost of keeping this resource alive. These ads are served by other sites, like Google or Microsoft, and they do collect data. We have no control over third-party policies on data collection and storage. But we are letting our users know and advise them to use privacy-centered browsers to access our content; we won’t be offended if you do!
